Media Day

Way late getting to my blog entry! Not because I’m just blowing it off, either. I’ve been busy, or letting a kid use my computer. At least I got the video itself posted Thursday night. And the lag time between that and this blog will give me some data on how many of my “hits” come directly from YouTube, and how many come from my twitter/facebook feeds.
I called this “Media Day” becuase there were 2 media people out covering me: A photographer from the Columbia Missourian came out to shoot photos as a follow-up for an interview I did for a story; plus another journalism student with a video camera shooting and doing a story on me for a class project – complete with interview.
One of the points I made with the journalists is that I’m hoping to spend several years journaling the aging process on a footbag player. Ironically, I must try very hard not to blather on about health issues in my blog, because what whining I can’t resist is probably more than enough to bore the audience.
The health tidbit I can’t resist sharing today is the difference in the recovery process between kicking earlier in the day like I’ve been doing for the last 3 weeks, and kicking later in the day. I only kick once a week, but when I do I push myself hard. This session was stopped by sudden calf cramps at an hour twenty. It usually takes me a few days to recover from a session.
But so far, I have found that kicking earlier in the day, and then pushing myself to keep moving through the rest of the day, has greatly reduced the amount of muscle soreness afterwards. I feel like I’m recovering faster. I feel good. It will be interesting to see what happens when I have to go back to eveneings.
41:55 – Thanks for tuning in!
